() or ? = incomplete, doubtful data.
... = unavailable.
- = not computed (relatively meaningless).
1 Sum of "Arable land and land under permanent crops" and "Permanent meadows and pastures." Omitted are "Forested land," land "Unused but potentially productive," and "Built-on area, wasteland and other." The figures are rounded and in some cases adjusted downward because of the obvious difficulties of drawing a line between "pastures" and "wasteland," particularly where data are footnoted "rough grazing."
2 Except centrally planned economies (including Yugoslavia among the centrally planned).
Agricultural use in 1966, as reported to U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization.
Agricultural use in 1963, as reported to U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization.

(Complete data was available for U.S. (1968) and Japan (1967); DDT data only, for France and West Germany (both 1968)). Other major insecticide exporters, for which such detailed export data were not available included Netherlands, United Kingdom, Switzerland, and the Soviet Union. Data on chlorinated hydrocarbons reported "used in or sold to agriculture" in 1966 were taken from the U.N. F'ood and Agriculture Organization's Production Yearbook 1967 (7, Tables 143-148), although in most cases they appeared to be incomplete.
